There are two bugs with background images in Safari, as far as I know.
1/ as mentioned above, when a background image is bigger than it's
container (computed value), Safari loses the positioning, and start
repeating the image, even when no-repeat is specified.
It doesn't matter if the size mismatch is horizontal or vertical.
Workaround: none, except: be creative with your image.....
2/ a problem with background images on a:hover, where the image start
repeating when it shouldn't. So far I have only experienced this
problem with vertical offset of background images (moving the image up
or down on hover).
I did file bugs with Apple when I found those, but a reminder is never
PS - the first problem was once mentioned a long time ago on this list.
